Beijing says Western resistance blocking exports of missile defense systems

The possible termination of a missile sale with Turkey shows the difficulty for Beijing to expand its global arms exports in the face of enormous resistance from the West, observers said.

Reportedly under huge pressure from the United States and NATO, Turkey on Tuesday extended the bidding for its purchase of an intermediate and long-range air-defense missile system to Jan 31, which observers said basically closed the possibility of cooperation between Beijing and Ankara.
